Original Vernon Hill etching.

Very fine signed proof impression with crisp, clear line. No published edition of this etching is recorded.

Waiting is characteristic of Hill’s mature etched work with its symbolic image of a father and child waiting to begin their journey into the afterlife, guided by an angel. A stork, symbolising birth, looks on in silence.

On warm white laid paper with full margins and deckle edge. Mild discolouration verso only, otherwise very good condition.
